Kohli now holds the record for the most number of dismissals in ODI cricket by former captain and current India coach Rahul Dravid and former captain Kapil Dev. Dravid and Kapil have been dismissed 13 times in ODIs.

Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar has been out of zero the most number of times in ODI cricket. Tendulkar has been out for zero 20 times. Jawaharlal Srinath (19), Anil Kumble (18), Yuvraj Singh (18), Harbhajan Singh (17), Sourav Ganguly (16) and Zaheer Khan (14) are the leading scorers for Kohli.

Kohli has gone 64 innings without scoring a century in international cricket since being out for zero today. It is noteworthy that seven of these were out of zero. Kohli, who made his ODI debut after resigning as Test captain, also shone with a half-century.
